Redwood Case Study: Harrison Lake House

by: LBM Journal

On the point of Cascade Peninsula, the entrance to Cascade Bay on Harrison Lake, B.C., stands a recently remodeled home with exceptional views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The largest lake in southwestern B.C., Harrison Lake was formed by glaciers and is a popular boating, camping, fishing, and hiking mecca two-hours east of Vancouver in the Fraser Valley.

Built in 1999, the Harrison Lake home was purchased by the current homeowners in the fall of 2019. The home is primarily used as a weekend getaway during the warmer months from April to October. Besides the breathtaking views, the area holds special meaning for the family. The homeowner’s father and grandfather logged the area in the 1950’s, even living in a logging camp on Cascade Bay.

Upon acquiring the property, the homeowners undertook an extensive remodel, focusing on the interior kitchen and outdoor living spaces. In total, an impressive 1,200 square feet of outdoor living space was added. The addition includes a covered barbeque and outdoor kitchen, as well as a fireplace, seating, and dining areas. The covered section features a beautiful vaulted timber ceiling.
